Next in our series about ways to monetise your blog is ShopSense by Shopstyle. Shopsense is similar to rewardStyle in that it brings together lots of different retailers (including Net a Porter, Topshop and ASOS) under one site for bloggers to use for affiliate links. However, ShopSense is different in that the blogger can get paid by the readers clicking on the links – no purchase necessary!
ShopSense is the publisher (i.e. you, the blogger!) platform for ShopStyle, a shopping website which is part of POPSUGAR. Shopstyle is about making shopping online easier, bringing together different retailers so you can find the perfect outfit in one place.
ShopSense uses the Shopstyle ability of bringing together hundreds of retailers and allows bloggers to find the beauty, fashion and lifestyle items they might want to link to in a post – whether it’s a review post, outfit post or a wish list (or whatever else you think of!), its all made super easy for you. The below video will show you how to create the links, etc – it looks pretty simple, and the ShopSense team are really quick to respond to help requests.
There are a few different ways that you can integrate ShopSense into your blog – such as creating ad units for your sidebar, widgets so readers can “shop the post” and even a collage maker (no need for Polyvore with this!)
